Welcome to Gulmarg
If you're looking for extreme skiing in high-altitude powder, Gulmarg might be the dream winter sports destination you've been looking for. In summer, however, think twice. In warmer months the aging, two-stage gondola is overloaded by Indian tourists, many seeking their first encounter with snow. While there's bracing air and wide (though hazy) views from the top, the queues for tickets and further interminable waits between stages mean that what might have been a pleasant quick jaunt can end up taking all day.
